Reopening January 31, 2022

 

Here we go again!  We’re getting really good at putting together these reopening plans – let’s hope we don’t have to keep on practicing!   We are pleased to announce that CB55+ will gradually return to normal activities beginning Monday, January 31st, with a number of new and renewed  precautions as well as strict enforcement of occupancy levels and distancing protocols. 

While we are doing everything possible to keep our members safe, we would remind you that with the ever-changing face of COVID, we cannot completely mitigate the risks associated with COVID-19.  We would ask members to take this into consideration when planning whether to attend activities at CB55+.

Although the Centre was closed for a number of months during the pandemic, we kept our members connected by a regular email Update and continued a number activities via Zoom and meeting outside in small groups. The majority of our activities, programs, and events are now operating both at the Centre and/or via Zoom. We have something for everyone with 27 activities such as: Art Group, Bridge, Men’s and Women’s fitness, Golf, Walking, Pickleball to name a few. We have a Tuesday Drop-In program featuring presenters over a wide range of interesting topics, and we have special events in conjunction with special calendar events such as Christmas and other holidays.

Effective September 13th we are required to check proof of vaccination for anyone entering the Cordova Bay 55+ Centre by reviewing a printed or digital copy of your BC Vaccine Card. Members who cannot provide the required proof are not permitted to enter the Centre.

CB55+ Policy requires that all those attending activities at the Centre be double vaccinated and that at least 14 days have passed since your second vaccination. Note that masks are mandatory in the Centre except when eating/drinking and during fitness classes.

REOPENING UPDATE from the President

Since the gradual reopening of the Centre in June a number of activities have resumed at the Centre while others are continuing outdoors. The plan is to move to more normal activities in September. The Board’s Restart Committee has been monitoring the Provincial PHO information and COVID-19 conditions. In light of the recent increases in the COVID-19 statistics and the concerns regarding the Delta variant, the Restart Committee recommended and the Board approved the requirement of all those attending the Centre to be fully vaccinated.

For the protection of our vulnerable members, we require that all those attending activities at the Centre be double vaccinated and that at least 14 days have passed since your second vaccination. 

While we respect the rights of those who choose not to be vaccinated, recent public health statistics demonstrate that transmission of the COVID-19 virus is far more prevalent among unvaccinated populations.  The protection of our members is our number one priority.
